Changes are coming to PLEX. What are they? Read CCP Zulupark's blog to find out.

Wow. That's a pretty big change going on there. Not sure what will happen with the prices, and I doubt many will immediately start to leave station with them just yet. However it will be interesting to see what happens.

I just read the blog, good idea but the only problem is that you didnt mention if we can still activate it anywhere. If thats the case then no one will bother to move it unless they were stupid and created it in a system no where near a market hub.

I honestly can't wait to read people threatening to sue, or press charges when their "real money" was "stolen." It WILL happen.

It would only be taxed differently if you could take those items out of them game and convert them back into money. As it is right now, the service is already taxed when you pay CCP $15 or whatever.

No big deal, can't see why anyone would rage about this.

No one is forced to undock with a PLEX in cargohold. I'm not sure why anyone would anyway since you apply the plex remotely from everywhere in the universe.

So I can't see anything changing really. Okay, the PLEX claiming in non-NPC stations might be pretty useful.

Anyway, good to see that PLEX get their special status removed.

Also, that was already the case. Nothing has changed on that front.

Finally I won't have to fly to highsec to redeem (useless) free items! Best change in a long, long time. PLEX, what? *looks at 8 months remaining game time*

Splenderful!

Just one question, when will the redeem system allow us to activate a plex through the website so we don't have to ask a dev for a free day?

At the same time we're changing the behaviour of the Redeeming system a bit so that items can be redeemed in any station (you could only redeem items in NPC stations before).


From the wording I assume this means we can redeem any item at Outposts/Conquerable stations (eg. "gift ships"), and not just plex, correct?

If so, thank you very much :D its a nightmare travelling to the nearest NPC station where I am.

yes! yes! yes! yes! ohh ... i ... *blush*

We will remove the restriction that items (including PLEX) can only be reverse-redeemed from NPC stations


Hopefully this refers to outposts. Reverse redeem in space to save cargo would be hilarious.

Since im assuming 90% of all PLEX redemption goes on in Jita / Amarr / Rens why do i not think this is going to effect much of anything.

Also, maybe CCP wants to see plex's go up in price?

The only thing in EVE that wont go down is the price in $ per month... haha

If anything this let you pile them all up in one station instead of all over the place in case you don't plan to use them for a while.

Please CCP, make them 5000m3 so they mainly will be seen in T1 haulers. Twisted Evil

It is an INGAME item, no different. If you want to securely trade real money, USE GTC's and the secure trading system.

The same people who emoragequit when they get ganked hauling cargo they were going to sell to buy the PLEX in the first place. YARRRR!!

Well, really, we don't like items having "special status" in the game.
QFT!

Nice change, but I really don't think it will make much difference in practice.

...except that there will be some funny stories of people emoragequiting because they had elventy trillion ISK worth of PLEX's in their shuttle when it got popped while sitting AFK on the Perimiter-Jita gate. Twisted Evil



PS: Destroyed PLEX = free money for CCP. Makes good business sense as well as game balance sense. Wink

price are very different between region with plex, with something very rare in eve : jita's plex price are more expensive.

so on the first day(s) we will see lots of people undocking with plex to sell them on jita or other place with better sell orders.
(and i suppose, lots of gankers waiting for them ^^)

it also mean that these price will drop after.

i don't see why plex's price must go up, it will drop for me : as we can now move it, it will be more easy to have one, so it will be cheaper.
the value will only raise if lots of people are killed with some on their cargo, and i don't think there will be a lot like this...
